Not the happiest link, but very interesting one: How drowning isn't like the stereotypical idea of drowning at all. It was a little shocking for me to realize that I've never actually stopped to think about what drowning is really like, so this was an unsettling but necessary reminder.

In ten percent of those drownings, the adult will actually watch them do it, having no idea it is happening

I had my heart in the throat reading that. I did almost drown this one time, and I'm *just* realizing that indeed, I had never managed to actually call out for help, or even trash my hands around.

Thanks so much for the link.

I'm so sorry that happened to you! I can't even realize how scary it must have been for you, but I hope it never happens again.

*hugs* That article has definitely made me resolve to be more vigilant in the future, especially since my siblings go swimming all the time. I never thought it's not unusual for someone to just slip away quietly when they lost control in the water.
